Jackson Wang, a Hong Kong rapper and a member of the South Korean boy band GOT7, caught the public's attention while on his way to the local TV station for work. The K-Pop star was surrounded by fan girls when an unknown guy appeared. The man allegedly pushed one of the girls and Jackson just could not stay on the sidelines. "You shouldn't push women like that," the artist said, addressing the perpetrator. Later, Jackson had addressed him once more: "Don't push the girls like that, okay?" A video of the incident, which appeared online, immediately went viral.
Fans have noted Jackson's manliness and how his behavior changes when he's serious. Dozens of comments appeared on social media responding to the situation:
